I have more than the number of phones that my base will control. A couple of these have been lost or discharged, so I can't deregister them in order to register the valid "extras" that I have laying around. The base won't deregister them if it can't "find" them.

Press and hold handset locator on base station until 'in use' light comes on.
Press # on the handset and the phone registers itself to the base station.
I repeated the above procedure with my two remaining handsets and now I have a 6 handset cordless system for my home.
It's important to note that if you have a working base station you should use the standard instructions for deregistering the handsets. Each handset gets allocated a handset number by the base station, if you deregister using the special code detailed in this post then the reserved handset number on the base station is consumed and cannot be reclaimed; thus reducing the number of handsets the base station can support by 1. The special code is only for use when you have a handset that is orphaned from a lost or non-working base station. www.apparelstore38.com
It's likely that the transmitter located in the base station has failed.
Your handsets are looking for an answer from that station and not receiving any. If not still under warranty, it may cost less to replace the whole system than repair the base station even though most of the electronics that makes the system 'cordless' is mostly dependent on a packaged RF module that costs only a few dollars wholesale.
I just finished fighting my phone for this same problem.Try unplugging the base for a minute and plug back in. I had a dead battery, changed it, it still said out of range. Next I deregistered it by holding the "off" and # buttons until the menu popped up saying "deregister". I had to select "deregister without the base" to get it to work. After all this, I unplugged the base, and that is what solved my problem.
and select the owner's manual for your model phone. Follow the procedures for deregistering the handsets and then resetting the base. then re-register the handsets and you should be good to go. It is all pretty easy, just a little to wordy for this forum I guess.
lets start with obvious i hope you have manual for phone still cause typen instructions for deregistering phone is long type
the reason phone could be showing its still in use is because phone needs to be deregistered and then reregistered back on the hand set base
the other thing is one of your neighbors has tapped your phone line giving you this busy signal
or say you still using dial up on your comp this will show a busy signal cause its using your phone line to get online
place on base the will register your handset but make sure battery is charged now to deregister hold # end call button together for 8 seconds follow instructions for deregistering then once done place on handset to register
follow these steps and you will so great:( page 8)
wont work try deregistering and then register again
